Engaging the Public - Agendas, Minutes, Public Comment & RTKL Requests - Virtual Class - 6/28/22

In this virtual class, we will cover a series of common, but challenging, issues that township administrators face when working with and responding to members of the public and media and highlight ways to effectively address them.

For example, we will review how much detail you are required (and should not) include in your agendas and minutes, how to best reflect public comment, and tips to make the entire process easier for you and your board members. We will also address challenging residents during the public comment period and how your township boards can respond to them to ensure the continuation of a productive meeting. As for the Right-to-Know Law, we will cover hot topics, ways to streamline your response process to limit headaches, and more. The class also explore other public engagement issues and challenges. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to share their own tips and tricks.
